Frandent: the high performance of the Sprint seeder

Important news from Frandent. The Piedmontese company (the headquarters are in Osasco, Turin) specialized in the production of harrows and haymaking technologies (hay rakes and tedders) diversifies its range and enters the sowing machine segment.  The integrated Sprint seed drill is the forerunner, whose official debut is expected at Fieragricola. "The Sprint model has been designed to prepare the soil and perform the sowing operations with a single pass. During the machine design phase - the manufacturer explains with a technical note - our technicians' efforts were aimed at developing an application capable of significantly reducing working times and at the same time improving the quality of operations, facilitating the growth and development of plants. In short, we wanted to offer the market a beneficial technology both from the point of view of operating and agronomic costs". For this reason, the Osasco-based company has combined the rotary harrow of the Eternum series with a paker or trapezium roller (the working width is 3 metres). The standard configuration of the combined machine, which is capable of simultaneously preparing the soil and sowing, involves the use of discs or sickles. However, the new Frandent seeder also has another great strength: "In addition to optimizing processing times, thus rationalizing the work in the field - adds the manufacturer - the Sprint model is able to operate even in the most complex environmental conditions and on the most difficult terrains".
